Cool! Though I do wonder why they didn’t do this a few months later so that DH part 2 could be included. McGonagall, Neville and Molly’s crowning moments of awesome would have definitely earned them a place.

If they included Part 2, the “Not my daughter you BITCH!” part would definitely made it to the top 10.

I don’t get why the first look at Hogwarts got into No.1. There were ones that were much better than that. I think they should have done this later, because DH Part 2 have loads of good moments

Won_Two, since when has the giant squid been in the films?

I agree they should have waited for DH2, but I guess they’re trying to excite people into seeing it at the cinema (but they could have excited them into buying it on DVD instead!). Oh well.

People complaining about which moments were where in the list, this was voted on by the public. Although (when I voted) there were 50 moments to choose from & you could pick 25 of them. They were taking suggestions for moments they hadn’t included though so don’t know whether they took that into account.

I agree with No. 2…Snape killing Dumbledore really captured the emotion and backstory (for those that read DH before watching HBP and…who didn’t?)

Harry imagined picking up his cauldron, and sprinting to the front of the class, and bringing it down on Snape's greasy head.
